This targets the connective tissue of the body (fascia) that is often missed in a more active style of practice. When stretching and strengthening the fascia, you can increase joint mobility, flexibility and circulation. Yin postures are passive and mostly floor-based allowing you to completely surrender and disengage muscular effort. Postures are generally held for 3-5 minutes at a time using a number of props to maximise comfort. Long holds can be both physically and mentally challenging, requiring you to search for stillness in both mind and body. This stillness in turn calms the mind and body which can help reduce levels of stress and anxiety.
This is a practice of concentrated focus to promote relaxation, reduce stress and increase awareness of the present moment. The point of focus for our classes is a guided visualisation that will lead you on a journey inward, enhancing personal and spiritual growth. Some of the many benefits of Meditation include increased memory, focus, communication abilities, tolerance and emotional stability. Recent research shows that a regular meditation practice may slow age related thinning of the frontal cortex, leading to longer lasting executive functioning.
